Crossfit + OPT
Last weekend Crossfit Dublin welcomed James Fitzgerald to Europe to present his physical assessment module to the cream of the crop in the Irish strength and conditioning community.
We were privileged to have most of our CFD coaches present to hear James describe in detail how to physically assess an individual and integrating that assessment into designing a program for the individual aimed at getting them to a place of balanced fitness. James, the 2007 crossfit games champ, had nothing but good things to say about his time at CFD on his blog the following week. Check this link to see what he had to say – OPT + CFD DUBLIN .
I along with most CFD I’m sure would like to thank Crossfit HQ for opening a whole can of worms 15 years ago now about what it is to be Fit and how to achieve it. Now that the can is open, I have a hunger to know more about the science of fitness. What is the optimal dose response to what I prescribe in daily programming at CFD. This is why I have chosen to work closely with OPT and his stable of CCP coaches who seem to be leading the way in understanding and developing fitness.
More news at CFD is that Dave and I would like to welcome Ian (maddogg) and Albert to the full time coaching staff at CFD. The boys have been part of the community and training with us since the early days in Sandyford, and have both been coaching here part time for the past year. As a result of finding crossfit, they both have discovered that they have passion in life trying to improve the physical and mental well being of others. We will be hearing from both of them on the blog regarding their thoughts and goals in taking on this new challenge in life. Good luck guys in your new career and I look forward to working with you from here on.
